Book Circle

"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
Of cabbages--and kings--
And why the sea is boiling hot--
And whether pigs have wings."

The Walrus and The Carpenter / Lewis Carroll (from Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, 1872)

And which books we're going to read and who is going to read them!

So.  From the comments on my last post about this, I figure we've got the following folks on board. 

If you are not on this list and would like to be, please let me know.  Anyone is welcome to join in. The only rules are you need to commit to reading at least 6 of the books, and to blog about them on your blog or somewhere (e.g. a note on Facebook).

I'd like to start pulling together a list to vote on. We can do this several ways - I've created a document in Google so if you have a Google ID I can share this document with you and you can add your suggestions.  Or, alternatively you can email me: pdugmore2001 at yahoo dot co dot nz and I'll add them.  Mel, I think you emailed me some earlier but for some reason I can't find it!  Could you resent please?  Sorry.

We should try and nail down 12 for next month (early) so we can get started.

Fiction, non fiction and any genre is welcome!


  1. mulling over what to add. thanks for organizing this again! just got the book thief today at the library:) and still wading through the ggm one...not my fave!

  2. Hey I hadn't read your last post, naughty me. I have read the books from Sept through to Dec. I know I have been slack in writing reviews. I might palce mine on facebook. Waiting on Book Thief.

    I would be happy to carry on, if you would allow me?

  3. I think I would like to be a part. I'm waiting for the Book Thief from the library. Where is a list of what you have read?
